Ladro Gertrude

224 Gertrude Street,
Vic 3065

We'd booked a table at Ladro Gertrude in Fitzroy on a Saturday, which was a good thing as it was packed when we visited.

We were shown through the front room with its big windows on to the street to a corner table in a slightly quieter and darker back room.

We ordered our drinks and then the food, and we did have short wait, but nothing unreasonable considering the number of diners. The Putanesco pizza was topped with tomato, fior di latte, parmigiano, cherry tomatoes, anchovies, capers, fresh chilli, black olives and basil. The saltiness of the small fish was well complimented by the other flavours on a perfectly woodfired oven cooked base.

I had the scout's pizza featuring tomato, taleggio, caramelised onion, basil, dressed rocket and parmigiano, another winning combination prepared flawlessly.

We also shared a side of broccolini with almonds, garlic and chilli, a simple but pleasant nice contrast to the rest of the meal.

The meal came to around $70 including drinks. The service held up well despite the restaurant being packed and turning over tables pretty swiftly. I'd happily return for more great pizza on another visit to this part of town.
